Built in 1927, the Joseph Moore House is a Sears Kit Home “Bedford” model. The mortgage was secured from Sears Trustee Walker O. Lewis on March 16, 1927 for $4100. The description of the Bedford model from the Sears Home Catalog reads:

“The Bedford bungalow home is readily admired wherever built. Its exterior is given a substantial appearance by the use of heavy columns and solid porch railing. It is planned to be constructed with first story of brick veneer with shingled gables and dormer.”
